Stress Impacts Your Health

Monday, July 29th, 2013

An article by guest author, Dr. Dmitri Sokolov of Healthy Kids & Family Chiropractic in Markham, Ontario.  

Young Woman Holding Her Neck in Pain“Stress”, this is one of the most heard words in common social vocabulary, and still not many know how it impacts our health and how to overcome it.

Chronic physical, chemical and emotional stress is the biggest contributor for developing serious conditions such as cardio-vascular diseases and cancer. Interestingly enough that those stressors are the same causes of postural dysfunctions, subluxation.

It is obvious to everyone that by observing posture we can very close estimate an individual health state. Think about it, how do you initially determine a person’s state just by looking at them? What denominator you are using? Their posture!

How do you know if person is angry? Their posture!

How do you know if person is tired? Their posture!

How do you know if person is upset? Their posture!

Frustrated? Their posture!

Sick? Their posture!

Stressed? Their posture!

Happy? Their posture!

Now you know why our parents and grandparents kept bugging us with the same statement “SIT STRAIGHT!” They never got tired saying it. Because they loved us and also because they knew, the better posture we have the more stress we can tolerate, we get less tired and ultimately we get healthier.

Now let’s have look at science. Windsor et. al. studied 50 randomly and causation of their death and relation to the spine and nervous system. The result was astonishing. Scientists discovered 139 diseased organs that killed those people and 138 had direct correlation with the spinal misalignment and nervous system in the spine. 99.5 % of those randomly chosen people had chronic condition and abnormal posture and spinal misalignment.

Since there is a very tight relationship between brain and the body, posture and spinal realignment is the key element to turn stress from causing the disease to cause healthy adaptation and healing.

Why chiropractic care for kids?

Back To Health Chiropractic Care in Maple, Vaughan provides pediatric chiropractic care.

Young girl playing with paintMaple, Vaughan ON – Today, more and more parents are bringing their children to the chiropractor. Children receive tremendous benefit from chiropractic care.

Many times, we will get a call from a parent that goes something like this: “My friend has been bringing her baby with colic to the chiropractor and she said it has helped.  My child has constipation, can chiropractic help?”

Yes, chiropractic can help. We have seen many children with childhood conditions like colic, bedwetting, asthma, allergies and digestive troubles respond well to chiropractic care. However, chiropractic care is not a treatment for these conditions.  The objective of chiropractic care is to find and correct spinal misalignments.  Spinal misalignments can exist in infants and children just a they can exist in adults. 

Why should kids get checked for spinal misalignments?

Because a spinal misalignment puts strain and stress on the nervous system.

A healthy nervous system free of strain and stress is essential because the nervous system controls and coordinates every function of the body, including healing and repair.  Therefore, a spinal misalignment can diminish and decrease a child’s ability to express optimal function and optimal health.  Every parent I have ever met wants their child to be fully healthy, expressing their fullest life potential. Chiropractic aims to keep the spine and nervous system optimized and healthy. In this respect, chiropractic works for infants and children just as it does for adults.

How does a infant or child get spinal misalignments?

In children, there are numerous way that spinal misalignments can occur and often time they go undetected because the child will not usually complain of pain like an adult does.
